    "It seems like a good app, but I'm not really sure. The phones themselves are spying on you, so what is this app really going to protect you from?"

    "';-- Have I been Pwned is a website that searches for your email address to see if it has been the victim of a data breach. If you have then you need to change your password for the account. You can find the same information by doing some digging around on the web, but this is a fast and easy way. It is a nice service but it isn't exactly a match for the topic. This is just something to do after the fact and doesn't prevent it from happening."
